I just tallied all the deer sightings I had this year from opening day of bow season to the last day of gun season. I had 156 deer sightings. Some were probably the same deer that I saw several times throughout the season as I hunt three main areas regularly.
Since I hunt Scott, Morgan, and a little in Fentress Counties, I feel that that is a goodly amount of deerflesh to spot over the course of a season.

Does anyone else keep track of their number of deer sightings? If so, how many and what counties?

Yeah, that's a good amount. I'm usually between 75-100 deer sightings per season.

Although I had a record opening day in buck activity, my total sightings for the entire year were less than 15 total deer. I only hunted my property this season tho, no public or quota hunts.
